You know that you can do that almost everywhere on the planet, right?
#414 to #411 - anon (01/12/2013) [-]
You can do all that and more in Canada.
#417 to #414 - pukki (01/12/2013) [-]
Yeah, but can you do this?

Ps. I would love to move to Canada in some point of my life.

Wikipedia actually says Finland had 337,000 346,500 men whereas soviet union had 425,640–760,578 men, 998,100 men (overall), Which is still a great difference but maybe not as much as that picture says

while i do agree that the finish fought hard and brave in this war. the numbers aren't relay comparable.... the finish army was made of highly trained soldiers, while the soviet soldiers were conscripts who barley fired with a gun before they were sent in to battle.
ps. your later alliance with Hitler probably isn't something to be proud of either, just saying.

well, it was the only thing to be done to prevent soviet from invading, and besides en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lapland_War

no offense, but did you read about the Moscow Armistice that, in your article, is named as the main reason for the fight against Germany ? Finland had given up in 1944 when the USSR started advancing and Finland couldn't relay on Germany to occupy the USSR at Leningrad. Finland started fighting Germany because otherwise it would have lead to a USSR invasion of Finland.

and would you plz elaborate why the USSR would have invaded Finland after the Winter war showed that the red-army had huge difficulty fighting in Finland ?

umm.. no i just meant that our truce/alliance didnt last because we wanted to surrender but germany didnt want to, its quite a trick cuz our president promised that we wouldnt give in, then he left as president and we signed a truce with soviet. The lapland war was most just that finland drove germany out

i guess we can conclude that politicians have been full of **** all through history :)

Quite the contrary actully, most of the finnish soldiers had no military training what so ever and were badly equipped. The diffrence was that the finns knew the land in and out and had something to fight for!

We probably could. look up "war of 1812" where canada defeated the USA Army and then proceeded to burn the US Capital Washington to the ground.

Ps. you should totally move to canada some point in your life, everyone's real friendly.

quite impressive, but there didnt seem to be a huge difference in numbers there. Im just pointing out that under the winter war Finland was outnumberer 250k to 1,5m :b
#602 to #430 - polpoldk (01/12/2013) [-]
actually as fucedbyapony pointed out the picture is ******* , the real numbers were 425,640–760,578 men, 998,100 men.
